Sometimes you have to sprinkle a little salt and pepper on your scrambled eggs...

Otherwise, they are bland and tasteless.

That is the way I look at the debate and discussion on DU. Although I may disagree on a lot of issues, I still believe the discussion is like salt and pepper. By themselves, they may make you wince or sneeze, but mixed in with the eggs, they taste a whole lot better.

We should not take the debate here too seriously, because in the long run, we would be much more bland and tasteless without the salt and pepper to season them...

peace

3. Well all you need is Tabasco sauce

And anyone who doesn't put Tabasco sauce on their eggs is a troll.

(Cholula and Red Devil are acceptable substitutes, based on your condiment budget)

5. I'll put in a bid for Tapatio on eggs. Yum! (Don't eat them much any more b/c of

 

cholesterol concerns, but when I do, I have my Tapatio ready to rock.)

Show me a green card, or buy a bottle of Crystal.

unless they are hard boiled, and I can pull the yucky yolk out, but I love hot sauce in my biscuits and gravy and in my grits

That sounds delicious. Is it true that it's sweeter than Bhut Jolokia (ghost pepper) sauce? I've heard that it both lights you up and has a great flavor.

35. Chocolate 7-pot!

I haven't tried one, but they are consistently the hottest pepper out there. Scorpions can get hotter, but the Chocolate 7-pots are just consistent bad assery.

I look forward to hearing how it does and how it tastes! Please post and let us know the results
